Former Miss World Rosanna Davison
is to serve up a vegan treat when she takes part in the next portion of TV3’s Celebrity Come Dine With Me.
While the first series featured a mostly male line-up, it’s the women who will rule the kitchen this time round.
Joining Rosanna (27) around the table, will be top model boss Celia Holman Lee
(61), Apprentice runner-up Geraldine O’Callaghan (26), comedian Joe Rooney
(48) and celebrity photographer Brian McEvoy
And a TV3 source said expect lots of "bickering" as all three women are fiercely competitive. "This time round it's all about the girls. Paul and Brian were the main stars of the show last time but it's all girl power with this series. It's a long week and it's hard to stay chirpy so let's just say things don't run too smoothly," said the source.
"Celia, Rosanna and Geraldine are all extremely competitive in their working lives so it's no shock that they were in it to win it. There are some bickering moments throughout the week, no doubt about that. Rosanna and Celia get on really well but they don't really know Geraldine," explained the source.
Meanwhile, comedian Joe, who is best known for his role as Father Damo on Father Ted, provided the entertainment during the long hours of filming which wrapped up yesterday. TV3 producers were over the moon when photographer Brian, who has been credited for launching the careers of Georgia Salpa, Nadia Forde and Tiffany Stanley, agreed to do the show at the last minute.
Brian was called in to do the show after Jedward's manager Liam McKenna
was unable to take part in the series after being rushed to hospital with pneumonia. Viewers are set to see another Celebrity Come Dine With Me later this month with model Pippa O'Connor, Holly Sweeney, Michael O'Doherty, Shane Byrne and Madeline Mulqueen taking part.
